Bill Maher Goes After Dr. Eben Alexander and Other Brilliant Scholars Who Believe in Complete Nonsense

On Friday night’s Real Time, Bill Maher went after brilliant people who contain a core of stupidity — people like Dr. Eben Alexander and Dr. Ben Carson, who are trained neurosurgeons who also believe in complete nonsense:

“There’s no more attractive figure in the Republican Party these days than an anti-intellectual with an advanced degree,” Maher said, noting other figures like Antonin Scalia, Ted Cruz, and Bobby Jindal, “who are accomplished scholars on the outside, and on the inside a creamy layer of [Michele] Bachmann.”
